Here We Go Again…

Turns out one race for charity wasn’t enough, so I’m back for Magical Miles Part Deux: Two Hoots, Three Races! Yup, I’ve signed up for the Disney Princess Half Weekend Glass Slipper Challenge AND Princess 5K, and I’ve roped Mama Hootman, who has never run a race in her life, into doing BOTH the Princess […]

My Achey Breaky Shins…

Maybe it’s not the tune that would make Billy Ray Cyrus any money, but it’s what I’m feeling right now. On Sunday a did a commercial dance routine on a very-much-not-sprung village hall floor. Then that same afternoon I did a dance call on a floor that was sprung, but where this happened: It was […]

Last day until my Jocktober 30 Day Multi-Challenge madness!

So, I decided to make October the Month of the 30 Day Challenge, which seemed like a really good idea when I was writing all of this shit into my calendar, but not so much now… Can’t it ever be thirty days of lying in bed and Netflix?! Anyway, so starting tomorrow, in addition to […]

Ballet Class, aka A Big Ol’ Slice of Humble Pie, aka Why You Should Cross Train With Ballet

If my earlier post wasn’t already hint enough, tonight I took a ballet class. It was the first ballet class I’d had in about a year (and that was the first one since leaving college) and it involved the first bit of pointe work I’ve done since I was about 17. And despite all of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review: HIGH5 EnergyGels Part Deux!

So today I took my second set of HIGH5 gels, OrangePlus with Caffeine and CitrusBurst for a spin. Given my last HIGH5 experience, I chose to dilute them both in water, rather than eat them. So let’s get to it! Flavour: 3/10 Meh again. Honestly once diluted in water it’s impossible to tell any of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode I: Jelly Belly Sport Beans

So, for my first energy product test I chose the mild-sounding Sports Bean by Jelly Belly in Lemon Lime flavor… Flavor: 10/10 These beans taste like your classic run-of-the-mill Jelly Bellys. There’s no strange aftertaste or funny consistency. I would honestly eat them even if I weren’t exercising! Convenience: 7/10 They aren’t sticky or messy and […]

Juicing & Training

Okay, so yesterday and the day before were the first two days of a three day juice detox plan from Soulmate Food. I’ve decided to be a bit whacky and save the last days worth of juices until next Tuesday. This is for two reasons: 1) Hunger: nausea, light-headedness, exhaustion. I’m not new to this. […]

New Method of Posting Statistics

So, I’ve been recording my “Stats” for my own benefit, but as has been apparent, I am really, really lazy about getting on a blogging when I’ve gone for a run. I’m constantly posting my stats late (as well as missing weekly blog features like #FitFriday and The Weekly Cool Down, which I will try […]

Official Training Commences!

As of yesterday, the Official Walt Disney World Marathon Training Program has commenced. My “real” training has begun! This training program consists of two forty-five minute runs and one “long” run a week. For simplicity’s sake, I will be now recording my runs in miles instead of kilometers, as the long run goals set out […]
